In 1983, Caritas Macau provided a Driving Training Service for People with Physical Disability. This training originated from a donation of an American businessman through Mother Mary Goisis, and the fund was used to buy a car designed for disabled people who must relied on specialized hand control to drive, especially for a disabled youth. Later, because the young man was not suitable for learning to drive, a social worker made use of this special car to offer driving training to people with disabilities.
When this service was made public, it was actively participated by the disabled, and was signed up by more than a dozen people at a time. Most of them were disabled people in wheelchairs. Since 1990, Caritas and a volunteer car coach have assisted in the re-promotion, and this service has once again emerged.
This training can not only enhance learners’ self-confidence but also bring much convenience to them when using this mode of vehicle, expanding their social activities and increasing their employment opportunities.
